Apparently no one told American politicians that America is at war

with Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen and on and on and on and on.

Stop the fucking wars if you really care about the killing of innocents.

Congress in the 1980s decided post-Soviet Afghanistan wasn't worth rebuilding, and as a result, we got al-Qaeda, the Taliban, the destruction of countless World Heritage sites, and the roots of modern Islamist terrorism.

33. Seabeckind, you seem to prefer deflecction to engaging in real discussion.

"Just walking away" is a decision with consequences. Those consequences include allowing ISIL to expand their influence over more lives, open more prisons for torture and execution of innocents, and genocidal attacks on entire communities. Sticking our head in the sand will not change the fact that walking away would have far worse consequences than our continuing to support Iraq and Syrian rebels in the fight against ISIL and Al Qaeda.

32. Walking away would entail one additional step

Speaking purely as a speculative matter, if the US wants to walk away from the mess in the Middle East (ME), then I think it needs to do something else after walking -- it would need to militarily and virtually wall off the entire region so that no-one within gets out, and the Muslim nations and peoples behind the wall are forced to deal directly with, and defeat, jihadism and ISIS. Or not, their choice.

It isn't hard to imagine where the line would need to be drawn (likely Turkey's border with Europe) nor is there an absence of military and civilian technology available to create a functioning (virtual) "wall" between the west and the Muslim ME. I'd give Muslims living outside the wall the right to a one-way ticket across the wall if they want to go in there to live with, or fight, jihadists, as they wish. If they don't choose to take up that offer, then they are, of course, entitled to and welcome to stay on our side.

When and if the ME muslim leaders behind the wall get their act together and defeat jihadism, then we can negotiate the re-normalization of relations, and taking down the wall. If they don't or can't accomplish this, then life will go on for us, and the wall will remain in place.

Oh yeah, Israel, it would be behind the wall. I'd suggest to Israelis and their leaders that they get serious about something they seem to have overlooked for the last 50 years -- striking a deal that will give them and their neighbours peace. If that's not possible for them to accomplish, I would offer all Israeli citizens the most generous resettlement program in human history.

/end of speculative proposal

"militarily and virtually wall off the entire region so that no-one within gets out"

is NOT walking away.

It is remaining actively engaged in the internal conflicts within that region.

Let me know when you get the details worked out... especially the one where the US inserts its forces into yet another sovereign country and what the ramifications of that might be.

The idea of putting up a wall is to isolate the bad guys, and to force the good guys behind the wall to take out the bad guys behind the wall. No further US military intervention would be needed (or wanted) behind the wall.

I don't think building a wall around an entire region is prudent or moral.

Also, there are more Muslims living outside the Middle East than living in it.

43. Doesn't matter that more Muslims live outside than within the ME

I don't have a problem with the overwhelming majority of Muslims who peacefully live in the west. They go about their lives just fine without me worrying about them. The bad guys in our midst we can deal with, once the jihadist terror from the ME now being inflicted on the west is halted. Stop the movement of people over the wall, and I think we can resolve deal with the bad guys here in due course. And I think the people in the ME, on the other side of the wall, most of whom are not jihadists, will, in time, on their own, deal forcefully nd successfully with their bad guys, as only they can.

Don't be so simplistic. In Iraq alone one million people at least lost a family member. If close to a million actually died then that number increases ten fold. Those are who started ISIS when we broke up the Iraq Army and splintered the Sunnis. Those who sympathize with them and commit terrorist attacks feel the pain of their persecuted people like throughout history. Just because some mentally ill wannabes or copycats commit crimes doesn't change facts on the ground.

Its not simplistic to ask WHICH of the many attackers committed the attack because they lost family.
Its not revenge, its attacking to further their stated goal. They state they are retaking Europe and all must surrender to them. They want their caliphate
Europe has been ignoring whats coming for too many years; throwing their doors open to the worst the world has to offer. They're seeing the error of their "tolerance" now.
We're making the same mistakes here; acting like these criminals are no different than any others. the result will be the same if we continue to ignore REALITY

It is muddled and poisoned thinking, and for good measure might be the element that gives Trump an avenue to actually win the election, because this country is THAT stupid.

If we have a for real ISIS attack here, not one of this would bes who are latching on from the internet, if we have some kind of 9-11 type planned and orchestrated attack by muslims here, it IS going to be POTUS Trump, and just more of these iincidents and any more lone wolf type incidents here are very problematic in this way.

In case you forgot, Dubya went to war with Iraq, and it destabilized the region. He also failed to listen to his briefing which stated that they were going to use planes on 9/11 to attack the US. Why was this attack waged? If you read the history, it is because US troops were in Muslim Holy Lands. Had the troops not been there, 9/11 probably would not have happened, Shrub would not have attacked and destabilized Iraq, and ISL would not have been formed.
Using all that unimpeachable logic, the US is to blame for ANY AND ALL attacks by ISL.

BTW the US did pull its bases from Saudi Arabia, which was Osama Bin Laden's excuse. Did the attacks stop?

Look at it, and you shall see. The US pulled bases from Saudi Arabia AFTER they destabilized Iraq. Once Iraq was destabilized, and the Baath Party was totally taken out, and had nothing to do, the early forming of ISL was started. Attacks did not stop, not because we pulled troops from Saudi Arabia, attacks did not stop because the US did not stop killing innocent people in the Middle East.

I suppose that you are one of the folks who want to just turn the entire region, except for Israel, to glass.
It would not surprise me one bit, if you fail to see the how and why of ISL.

"it is because US troops were in Muslim Holy Lands. Had the troops not been there, 9/11 probably would not have happened"

Did we invade Saudi Arabia? Of course not. Any troops we had in Saudi Arabia in September 2001 were there with the permission (and likely invitation) of the Saudi Arabian government. How are we responsible for this inciting a group to commit mass murder.

We also have troops in South Korea, by invitation of the Korean government. There are actually a lot of people in Korea who don't want our military there anymore...and they protest the 'old fashioned' way with peace marches and the political process. If they decided to short circuit the process and slaughter 5,000 Americans, I certainly wouldn't blame myself.

BTW, we probably have a marine or two at the embassy in Saudi Arabia...does Al Quaeda still have permission to kill me because of this?

That would be a terribly weak argument.

57. If I have to explain it to you

 

I would probably get banned from the site.
Leave it to say, that I have stated my point. You can agree with the facts, or believe your own mythology.
One more insult from you, and I shall put you on ignore, with the rest of them.

61. Where did I insult you?

And if not believing we deserved to be attacked on 9-11 is "mythology" to you, I just might hit that ignore button first.

27. But we need the wars.

 

They are essential to our economy. After all, the only thing that is made here are weapons of war.

53. Naailed it and with the collapse of ths Soviet union we needed another

ism with ists hence the preoccupation of the warmongers with a religion as ideology. It's all bullshit in the name of selling weapons,and the non-stop looting and plundering of resources everywhere on the planet.
The West barely mentions the humans we kill - just shove them into the 'collateral damage' column until the dead are on our side.


Fuck the fucking wars.

35. I do believe this thread has been hijacked.

I guess it's no longer about our US politicians who got us into this mess and keep us there.

It's become the rallying cry for those who held the banners for that movement.

And with that, I'll be on my way.

Just asking.
